Improv Festivals

We run a couple of improv festivals every year including our UK and Ireland Improv Festival in April and our big Hoopla Improv Marathon in September.

We’re also going to be taking a show to the Edinburgh Fringe and Vault Festival each year where we showcase the best groups to have come out of Hoopla.
